Israel’s new President: a war criminal par excellence

By Khalid Amayreh

"West Bank - To many in the West, Israel’s new President Shimon Peres is a respectable statesman and man of peace. However, in truth, Peres is a repulsive racist and war criminal who has tons of innocent blood on his hands.....

Peres, born as Szymon Perski in Vishniova, Belarus, in 1923, has a long history of serving the evil Zionist enterprise in Palestine.

In the mid 1950s, he introduced nuclear armament to the Middle East when he reached a secret agreement with the French government whereby France agreed to supply Israel with the Dimona reactor for the express purpose of developing an arsenal of nuclear bombs and warheads......

Following the occupation of the West Bank, Peres enthusiastically supported a highly aggressive campaign by Talmudic Jewish settlers, known as Gush Emunim, to grab Palestinian land in order to build Jewish-only colonies.

The purpose of the large-scale land-grab was twofold: first to build a Jewish colony near every Arab village and town so that the messianic settlers would harass the native Palestinians into fleeing their land, and, second, to create irreversible “facts” on the West Bank in order to make it impossible for any future Israeli government to withdraw from occupied territory.

Peres’ criminality and cruelty assumed a high-pitched expression in 1969 when he as Prime Minister ordered the Israeli army, the Jewish Wehrmacht, to bombard the UN peace-keeping forces at the village of Qana where hundreds of Lebanese civilians had sought shelter from indiscriminate Israeli bombing of Lebanese villages and hamlets in southern Lebanon. The bombardment, in which heavy artillery shells were used, killed at least 101 children and women and injured and maimed many others.....

In short, Peres, who is about to become Israel’s President, succeeding the disgraced Moshe Katsav, is nothing short of an evil war criminal and child-killer. The fact that he is received with respect, and probably some admiration around the world, doesn’t alter this fact."
